Land court allows whānau to apply for whenua, overturning 50-year-old ruling

Our Director, Coral Panoho-Navaja, has successfully assisted clients to overturn a historical court ruling which excluded descendants from their whenua.  The application, originally filed in 2010, under section 45 of Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993, came within the Chief Judge's discretion and involved complex legal arguments including navigating different legislation in force at the relevant times.
